A team of six students from Sands Secondary in North Delta will be one of two teams representing B.C. at the Ethics Bowl this week in Manitoba taking place at the Canadian Museum of Human Rights.
The Ethics Club of Sands Secondary participated in the regional Ethics Bowl last weekend at Simon Fraser University with a few other Lower Mainland schools.
Sands and Ideal Mini School were the finalists to move onto the nationals.
Sands students came together fast to work with their parents to commit to the nearly $1,300 cost per student to attend the event.
One of their teachers was able to secure some funding from the school, the social studies teachers’ foundation and SFU Ethics BC within a day that amounted to less than $300 per student. The students left for the competition on Wednesday.
